Attachment and Well-Being: How the Healthy Mind Emerges from Within our Relationships and Our Bodies
The field of interpersonal neurobiology offers a synthesis of a wide range of sciences to reveal how the human mind can be seen as an embodied and relational, emergent self-organizing process that both emerges from and regulates energy and information flow. With this perspective, optimal self-organization can be viewed as arising from the linkage of differentiated elements of a system, a process called "integration" that can be cultivated in our relationships and in the body, including its brain. Impaired integration leads to chaos and rigidity, the two poles of impediments to well-being. Psychotherapy that evaluates the origins of this chaos and rigidity and then focuses interventions on cultivating integration can move beyond mental distress and both define and focus on creating states of optimal living of well-being.

For the first time in the United States, Creating Connections 2016 brought together the world's most-renowned and followed neuroscience and psychotherapy experts as they focused on the continuing impact of cutting-edge science. All previous Creating Connections conferences have been held in Efteling, the Netherlands, since their inception in 2011.
The practice of psychotherapy is undergoing a revolution because of the latest research showing the ways people are wired for relationships and how they can employ innate tools for managing those relationships. The researchers and scientists at Creating Connections 2016 helped attendees and viewers develop their own framework and techniques for applying this science in their work with adults, couples, children, and families.
